16 bit screen savers on Windows XP

I have several screen savers that I have written in Borland Delphi 1 over the years.  In the past, I have placed the .SCR files in the c:\windows folder   This worked fine for years with Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000 and ME, but now having recently purchased XP, my screen savers do not show up in the Screen Saver list under Windows XP.

I have copied the SCR files from c:\windows to c:\windows\system32, but still no luck.  The screen savers do not show up at all under the Display > Screen Saver listing.

I have tried changing the file name from UPPERCASE.SCR to lowercase.scr...but still, they fail to show up in the Display > Screen Saver listing.

Any ideas why?

Ufortunately, WinXP does not support 16-bit screensavers.
You can run them by opening the scr file but they will
not show up in the Display Properties|screensaver list.
By the way, you can install a 32-bit screensaver in WinXP from any folder.
